Jobs: Two Chairs in new Centre for Computational Neuroscience and 
Cognitive Robotics

Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics
Linking neuroscience with robotics.

The University of Birmingham is making a multimillion pound investment 
to create the Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive 
Robotics (CNCR). The Centre will foster an interdisciplinary, 
collaborative approach to advance understanding of brain function and 
learning, and develop better robotic systems. The research will be 
translated into innovative treatment for patients with developmental, 
degenerative or acquired neurological disorders.

To establish the centre, we are seeking two Chairs, one in computational 
neuroscience and one in cognitive robotics.  These appointments will be 
the first of a series culminating in ten academic and technical 
positions. In the intermediate term we will be appointing three 
lecturers and two technical positions to directly support the incoming 
teams. This will be followed by the appointment of a further three posts 
(one chair level) in the next year. We expect the new chair-level 
appointees to play a major role in the next round of recruitment.

The initial two chairs should have an international research record that 
makes cutting-edge contributions to their field. Salary will be 
commensurate with experience. For information and enquiries please 
contact either
